The Ayawaso Commission has promised to provide a balanced and unbiased report on the incident that marred the January 31, 2019 by-elections in Ayawaso West Wuogon.


The Commission rounded up their public hearing as they coss-examined the last witness at the 37 Military Hospital.

Executive Secretary of the Commission, Kofi Abotsi told the media that the Commission has gathered all evidence needed and will come out with a balanced report.

Speaking to the media after the end of sitting, Mr. Abotsi was optimistic that the findings of the Commission’s work will serve its intended purpose.



 “The testimonies that we have will carefully be reviewed and the report that will be presented to the President will reflect in a balanced way to the evidences gathered. So nothing is going to be compromised. I can assure anyone who is a skeptic that this commission is going to deliver a report that reflects the facts and evidence presented before it.  We do hope that, in the end, we will deliver a report and provide [meaningful] recommendations,” he said.


The Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election on January 31, 2019, was characterized by violence.

This led to shooting and subsequently the injury of some 13 people believed to be NDC members.

This made the President set up a Commission of Inquiry to probe the incident.

The Commission is chaired by a former Commissioner of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Justice Emile Short.

Legal expert Prof Henrietta Mensah Bonsu and Mr Patrick K. Acheampong, a former IGP, are members of the Commission.

The Commission was given a month to submit its report to the President.
